You are so kind Mary. I'd love to send you the original file and have you work your magic on it.

For those who have not done so, I urge you to review Mary Beth's gallery.

Thank you Jeff. I had second thoughts about posting this altered version instead of the out of camera (with minor tweaks) but kind of liked how the colors looked.

Here's the other shot.

Salvage is a funny word Dale, I got a bunch of EP's, but not a single Finalist. Oh well, I guess we'll have to try again.

Thank you Patrick. I can say the same of you. Your work on macros and patterns are a real inspiration to me old friend. I'm still struggling with what I do but hope to migrate toward shots like yours and learning how to light them. Are you giving lessons? :o)
